Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The annual World’s Ugliest Dog® Contest at California’s Sonoma-Marin Fair attracts “so-ugly-they’re-cute” contestants, their devoted owners, and hundreds of thousands of fans, both in person and via worldwide media attention. This book—filled with hilarious photos as well as short profiles of the dogs and their owners—captures the wacky and wonderful spirit of the original contest just in time for its 25th year. Meet the well-loved dogs who soak up the glory while their owners sniff out the competition, make double-entendre comments, and see who can lift one’s leg higher around the hydrant of publicity. World’s Ugliest Dog photo galleries have run on Yahoo, the Huffington Post, People, Animal Nation, and more, to huge response. This book will likewise appeal to any dog lover with a sense of humor.

Format: Paperback
This book is a real curiosity and lots of fun. It's based on the World's Ugliest Dog Contest that takes place every year at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Northern California. They've been doing it for 25 years. The stars of the show are --not to put to fine a point on it-- really ugly. They are so ugly, you can't help but love them. This book is filled with the pictures of the wonderful animals and the amazing energy of the contest. Some of the dog lovers are pretty ugly too, by the way. In spite of the subject, the book is in no way snarky. Rather it's barky (I'm sorry. Couldn't resist that). The dogs are loveable and, in their own way, majestic. There are a million dog books out. It's hard to find something really different. Well, this one is, for sure. Good Christmas stocking stuffer for dog lovers.

I read the book and looked at the pictures. I was laughing and amused. I like the way the author had stories on champions and other noticeable dogs.

This book is so much fun! It is hysterical and sweet at the same time. I love these dogs that are celebrated for being a little less than perfect. The stories are sweet and the behind the scenes is a lot of fun. Who knew how much went into this show? I brought this book to work and it is a huge hit with all of my coworkers. I need to buy everyone their own copy. Well written and excellent photographs.
